Developer Mountpark’s initial proposals for high-density employment, retail and 600 new homes are still at the design stage and are part of a bigger regeneration initiative. The area covered stretches from the Sackville Estate and the old coal yard north of Hove Station to Newtown Road and Goldstone Lane where work by the Hyde Group is already under way.
The developer said that the scheme would boost the labour market with 475 jobs, plus 100 in construction, 400 in supplying the area and £1.5 million a year in council tax. There would also be a significant developer contribution.
“This will be a catalyst towards wider regeneration in the Hove Station area and the larger Brighton and Hove area as well.”
